A client recently asked me if there is an easy way to combine several separate scanned documents into a single PDF file.
The super-handy Preview app on the Mac makes such tasks so easy - allowing you to create a PDF from several image files or other PDFs, insert pages into an PDF, move pages around and delete pages
An amazingly handy feature on the iPad and iPhone is the ability to sign a PDF document that your receive in a mail message, then quickly and easily send the signed version back to the sender - without even having to print it or find a pen!
The 'Markup' feature on the iPad and iPhone (and also available in Preview and the Mail apps on the Mac) allows you to 'draw on' a PDF and/or add a signature to the document. That signature can then be saved, so that it can be used again and again to sign documents that you receive.
There are just so many occasions where I want to save the content of an email to somewhere other than one of my mailboxes on my iPhone or iPad.
For example, when I am arranging a trip, I like to keep all the confirmation emails in my Evernote, so that I can have everything relating to my trip stored in the one Notebook. This makes finding what I need SO easy.
To date, I have used a 'Premium' (i.e. paid!) feature of Evernote that allows me to 'forward' emails to my Evernote account.
While this has worked, in iOS 10 I have discovered a better way - one that does not require a 'Paid' subscription to Evernote, and that allows me to save ANY email as a PDF to Evernote, iCloud Drive, Notes or anywhere else that I choose.

Handy Hints (for iTandCoffee Club members)
Julian B has asked: "How do I merge several PDF documents, and ensure that they appear in the correct order in the new (merged) document?".
Merging a set of PDF’s (or even image files) on a Mac is so easy.
You can just use the built-in app called Preview. No need to purchase or download a third party app like Adobe.
Preview is the default app on the Mac for opening images and PDF's (although, for many people, Adobe has taken over as their default viewer.)
By sorting the required PDF files using Finder, then selecting them, then opening the set of selected files with Preview, you can easily generate a merged document.
Find out more in the iTandCoffee Handy Hint on this topic, which includes written instructions and a short, easy-to-follow video.
